Upcoming updates for Windows 7 RC

Hi all,

 

Starting on May 12th, we will begin a verification of some update scenarios on Windows 7 RC (build 7100), similar to the update verification we did for Windows 7 Beta (build 7000). We need to verify the update infrastructure to ensure that when we need to release real updates, the process will run smoothly. There will be at most 10 updates, and as before, they will not deliver any new features or fixes.

 

Many of the updates will install automatically, and a few will not. One of the updates will test a new update notification feature that provides detailed information about available updates that need to be installed manually. Windows 7 RC users will be prompted to install this update and provided more information about this feature –it will not install automatically.

 

Users will need to go to the Windows Update control panel and manually start installation of the updates that don’t install automatically, and the updates will be clearly marked as test updates. Click here, for more information about the Windows 7 Beta update verification process.

  • Die bis zu zehn Patches stehen ab morgen zum Download bereit. Der �berwiegende Teil installiert sich automatisch. Mit einer Aktualisierung testet das Unternehmen eine neue Benachrichtigungsmethode f�r manuelle Updates.

  • If the update policy is set to manual, or to download-but-not-install, will the "automatic updates" you refer to still install anyway without user intervention?

    Thanks,

    Jon

  • Hello all!

    I was hoping to find a positive answer to this question but I guess I was let down & completely disappointed. When managing lots of files, nothing becomes more simple than pressing a button. It's true that you can use the keyboard or the Organize Menu, but that takes more time/clicks if you're mostly working with a mouse. I don't know why a feature that has been on Windows since 3.11 (maybe more) and as simple as just placing a button on the mostly empty toolbar is so hard to implement. Besides, this completely departs from Microsoft's own vision of having to click less, and dig less though menus (Ribbon Toolbar in Office and even in MS Paint!!). Also, right clicking (adds one more click) gets stuck in thinking, maybe for the properties or such, but it doesn't show up right away, so it takes time.

    As much as Microsoft wants to make Windows their own, and with their own mind, why not make some (or many) power users happy by providing ways to customize the toolbars just like with Windows XP. Most users were fine with (XP) the simple Search, Back & Forward buttons on Windows XP, maybe because they had no clue they could customize. But then we, the power users, would customize AND recommend to customize the toolbars. Would it be that from now on we should start recommending Ubuntu? It's just for managing files after all. Nothing to do with applications!

    I hope Microsoft finds a way to let us work faster (as MS promotes its products - which would also save energy - be green) and be happier (as the new ads - and being green) with just a simple "Customize Toolbar" option on the Windows 7 Explorer toolbar which, the way it currently is, it's mostly empty.

    Thanks for providing this blog, since the I have yet to find the Send Feeback link in the Win7 RC.
